Publisher's Summary

A delicious, sexy, laugh-out-loud modern romance about a newly single woman and her journey to find love again, from New York Times best-selling author Alice Clayton and debut author Nina Bocci.
Avery Bardot steps off the plane in Rome, looking for a fresh start. She's left behind a soon-to-be ex-husband in Boston and plans to spend the summer licking her wounds - and perhaps a gelato or two - with her best friend, Daisy. But when her American-expat friend throws her a welcome party on her first night, Avery's thrown for a loop when she sees a man she never thought she'd see again: Italian architect Marcello Bianchi.
Marcello was the man - the one who got away. And now her past is colliding with her present, a present where she should be mourning the loss of her marriage and - hey, that fettuccine is delicious! And so is Marcello.
Slipping easily into the good life of summertime in Rome, Avery spends her days exploring a city that makes art historians swoon and her nights swooning over her unexpected what was old is new again romance. It's heady, it's fevered, it's wanton, and it's crazy. But could this really be her new life? Or is it just a temporary reprieve before returning to the land of twin-set cardigans and crustless sandwiches?
A celebration of great friendship, passionate romance, and wonderful food, Roman Crazy is a lighthearted story of second chances and living life to the fullest.

Loved it!

Wish there was a sequel 😟 . The story is scintillating, the narrator, a perfect match for the story's voice. Why did it take me so long to discover these writers? Or perhaps what took them so long to team up?! They are my new Christina Lauren---- and that is saying something!

Review: Roman Crazy, by Alice Clayton & Nina Bocci

What a great book. I've read and enjoyed Alice Clayton's work already, but haven't read any of Bocci's. What I can say after reading Roman Crazy is that having them write together was a great idea. While I don't have an example of Bocci's solo work to compare, I can tell there's a seamless writing style here. I know Clayton can do well-written characters and comedy. With this book, there's some amazing setting descriptions in there too. Not sure which author's responsible for that, but I want more. Italy was brought alive in this book.

Along with the setting, the story on its own kept me turning page after page. It's the story of a second chance romance, as well as Avery finding herself. A coming-of-age of sorts after years of losing track of what made her happy. Having both these elements mixed in with the setting, the foods, and the overall atmosphere blew me away.

I'm hoping these two authors continue to work together. They seem to make a great team. Though, I'll definitely keep my eyes open for any new solo work for either author. They're both talented, and Roman Crazy is evidence enough of that.

I lost myself in Rome

Well. Guess who wants to go to Rome right now? Yep, me! I loved this book from start to finish, so well written and a beautiful story of second chances. The book is written in single POV, as we follow Avery as she goes to stay with her friend Daisy in Rome following a major 'indiscretion' from her husband. While in Rome she meets a past love, not just a past love, but her one true love (fate at its best). If I had the opportunity of having a love affair while abroad, I would want it to be with an Italian 'God' just like Marcello, oh that man is so swoon worthy. I adored all the characters, they all played their part meticulously in perfecting the story. While reconnecting with Marcello Avery also discovers so much about herself, she truly does 'find' herself. She does however meet a few minor problems on her journey of self discovery, leaving us with a perfect romantic read. Thoroughly enjoyable, I really did lose myself in Rome. Roll on book 2, I desperately hope it's Daisy's story.

What would have made Roman Crazy better?

Less cliche more interesting content.

What three words best describe Randi Geddens’s performance?

She gave it a good crack. Randi's Male Italian accent was ok. Randi has a strong American accent (Not that it was an issue) I'm Australian so you can obviously notice a difference in how words are pronounced.

Any additional comments?

This is your average cliche romcom book, to point that you can sum up the plot in 5 minutes time. You know the where it is heading and know what the conclusion will be. I thought I would give this genre a go and thought that maybe this one would be different but it wasn't. Yes this a personal opinion, so many may like the light & fluffy theme but it just wasn't for me.
